From Faulkner County Sheriff's Office reports

Greenbrier woman reports fraud

A Vilonia woman is suspected of stealing her employer's personal bank account information.

According to an incident report, sheriff's deputies were called out to a residence along Highway 64 East on May 21 regarding a possible fraud case.

The complainant told authorities that she believed one of her former employees stole her personal bank account information and opened an insurance account.

The 28-year-old suspect claimed "the insurance was for the business" but the insurance account was opened using the employer's personal bank account, according to the report.

The complainant said she has since closed the account because she "is worried [the suspect] will try and steal more money from her."

According to the report, the suspect took $166.09 from the complainant to open the insurance account.

Deputies help woman get to shelter

Faulkner County deputies helped a Conway woman seek safety at a women's shelter last week.

According to an incident report, authorities were called out to a residence in the Wilson Township near Saltillo after a woman said she was worried her boyfriend was going to hurt her.

The 49-year-old woman told deputy Charles Vaughan on May 21 that she and her boyfriend "had been arguing on and off for the last three days" and that "she [was] afraid that he [would] hurt her."

The woman said her boyfriend was not physically abusive but that she wanted to leave the home because she no longer wanted to live in the environment she was in because her boyfriend was "getting more and more aggressive toward her,
the report states.

After gathering her belongings, the 49-year-old woman met with Vaughan and deputy Zachary Cooley so the deputies could help her get to a women's shelter.

Prior to dropping the woman off, the two gave the 49-year-old the report number associated with the case and told her how to get a no contact order issued against her boyfriend if she wished to do so.

Break-in reported on Thatcher Lane

A Thatcher Lane resident called police last week after witnessing a woman go to a neighbor's house and steal a TV.

According to an incident report, a 67-year-old man called the sheriff's office around 5:45 p.m. May 22 to report an incident he witnessed the night before.

The man told deputies he was sitting on his porch the night before when suddenly an SUV pulled up to his neighbor's home. At this point, "he observed someone walk through the carport, take a flat screen television, and drive off from the residence."

Authorities soon learn that the homeowner had also filed a burglary report on May 12 and working on writing a list of all the items that were stolen from her home, the report states.

Deputies were able to track a possible suspect using the license plate number the 67-year-old complainant provided after witnessing the May 21 theft.
